My boss and I laugh about an episode of one of the "Extreme Makeover"
shows.
They have an inspection at 2:30 AM , on a Sat.!!!
Huh?!?
We're lucky if we can get an inspection, within a week!!!
Real world or "Reality TV"?!?
And here I thought the funny part of that show was that the "makeover" invariably meant total demolition of the existing structure.

I like how they avoid showing the neighboring houses.

also they tend to set families up for failure. They could put reasonable repairs into most of the existing houses and keep the homeowner with a realistic tax bill. Yet they set these people up with houses they cannot afford and have no experience maintaining.

the shows I enjoy most are the ones where someone helps the homeowner make needed repairs and reasonable updates.

And all the work done on those homes(in USA) is taxable income. I ican't imagine most of the home owners being able to pay the tax bill.
